R + J is an experimental illustrative book which attempts to explain the entire plot to William Shakespeare's famous play "Romeo and Juliet" in simplified text. The play is explained to the reader in one sentence, with accompanying imagery on each of the 24 pages of the book. All illustrations and text were hand-drawn and the book was hand sewn together.
